    What is the earliest I can start reserving dining?

    Hi Brenda, and thank you for sending this most delicious question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    For me, one of the most important aspects of my Walt Disney World Resort vacation is the FOOD! I will be the first to admit that on most occasions I will plan our family's Theme Park visits and other vacation activities around our dining schedules, as opposed to the other way around!

    Dining reservations at the Walt Disney World Resort can be made up to 180 days in advance. Dining reservations can be made online or by calling Disney Dining at (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463. 

    If you happen to be staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you will be able to make reservations for your entire Resort stay (up to 10 days) starting 180 days in advance of your scheduled check-in date. Be sure to link your Disney Resort hotel reservation to your My Disney Experience account in advance of the 180 day booking window opening so you will be all set and ready to make those important dining reservations as early as possible as some of the most popular restaurants do book early. 

    Brenda, I hope this answers your question and will be of some assistance to you as you continue planning for your upcoming trip. Should you have any other questions about dining or anything else, please feel free to send them our way. We would love to hEAR from you again!

    Bon Appétit!
